I'm a Senior Computer Scientist at Magic Leap's Advanced Technology lab in Seattle. My research interests span computer graphics, novel sensing, human perception, and their applications to virtual and augmented reality. Contact me if you're interested in applying for an internship working with me and the amazing folks in the Seattle Magic Leap office. Internships are available year-round.

Prior to taking the leap, I was at Oculus Research in Redmond. I hold a PhD from the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was part of the graphics lab. I did stints as a mouseketeer at Disney Research, Jedi in training at Industrial Light and Magic, and visiting student at the Max Planck for Biological Cybernetics in Tuebingen, Germany.

I graduated Magna cum Laude with a BA in Computer Science from Mount Holyoke College. In Romania, where I grew up, I used to have a lot of fun with math olympiads and attended the International Computer High School of Constanta.
